Things to Do in Mahabaleshwar

  • Arthur's Seat

    Considered to be the queen of all points in Mahabaleshwar, Arthur's Seat is a beautiful site perched at a height of around 1340 metres above sea level. The vantage point is named after Sir Arthur Mallet, who built the first home here. It is believed that he spent hours at the site, gazing at the Savitri River, where he lost his loving children and wife in a tragic ferry mishap. The unique feature of this point is that from here one can see the geographical differences between Konkan Coast and Deccan Plateau. Other fascinating aspect is the stunning view of the deep, desolate Savitri Valley on one side and a narrow, green plateau on the other. However, the most interesting thing about this site is the rock formation and arrangement, which are compared with the world-renowned Grand Canyon in the US.

  • Mapro Gardens

    "Mapro Gardens is a popular attraction, located en route to Panchgani from Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. The garden is famed for its rich strawberry produce that greatly contributes to Mahabaleshwar's popularity. To encourage its production in the region, the park also hosts an annual Strawberry Festival. The main feature of this festival is the buffet of fresh strawberries that is laid for visitors to savour the same up to their heart's content. To make the whole event more engaging, special folk dance performances like Shivkalin Dhol and Lezim are performed by dancers who are called from Pratapgarh.

    Visitors can treat themselves by delectable fruit salads, strawberry shakes and ice creams. For the convenience of visitors, the garden is facilitated with many selling counters where one can taste and buy a variety of jams, marmalade, toppings, squashes and syrups. All these highlights make this place a must visit while on a tour of Mahabaleshwar."
